Hi everybody
My system pagefiles are badly fragmented. Number of fragments are 589
and I have tried doing defrag on boot using diskeeper lot many times
but no use. The drive has around 12% of free space.
How can I reduce fragmentation of page file ?

Don't worry about it.

Pagefile fragmentation as a performance issue is right up there with
Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy - lost of hype but very
little if any substance.

The only possible circumstance where pagefile fragementation would be
a performance issue is where Windows needs to load memory content back
into RAM from the pagefile, and all of the content that is now
required was moved out to the pagefile at the same time and would have
all been written to contiguous disk clusters if the pagefile had not
been fragmented.

The probability of that happening is infintesimal.

Good luck

You need more than 12% free space for Diskeeper to work properly..

Does this apply to you? How do we know that the file hasn't been tampered
with?

You don't know. If you think it has been tampered with then don't use it..
If you think I don't have permission to distribute it then call them up and
report me. Make sure you report back with their final answer. Why the hell
do you have a problem with that?
